EMANCIPATE YOURSELVES FROM MENTAL SLAVERY, NONE BUT OUR SELVES CAN FREE OUR MINDS

Dalai Lama (via purplebuddhaproject)

(Source: thecalminside, via guruwithin)

Within the framework of the Buddhist Path, reflecting on suffering has tremendous importance because by realizing the nature of suffering, you will develop greater resolve to put an end to the causes of suffering and the unwholesome deeds which lead to suffering. And it will increase your enthusiasm for engaging in the wholesome actions and deeds which lead to happiness and joy.

Ajahn Chah (via thecalminside)

(via guruwithin)

The essence of Buddhism is peace, and that peace arises from truly knowing the nature of all things. If we investigate closely, we can see that peace is neither happiness nor unhappiness. Neither of these is the truth.
